A member asked Angie Hicks what to do about water pooling in her crawl space
Here are the pros, cons and costs connected with the various basement waterproofing methods.
Where is the home located, what is the exterior wall construction and type, how is the space heated?
It could be a whole host of different scenarios that would generate that result. It is nearly impossible to tell but I would say that most basement moisture problems are a result of bulk moisture intrusion or condensation issues.
Given the deep and hard winter this year, it could be a condensation issue that hadn't previously been shown.
Basement Waterproofing reviews in Estero
I saw Waterproofing for Less on Angie's List and called Mr.
Given the low cost I was very skeptical. Needless to say, I am VERY PLEASED with the results. I’ve been holding off doing this review to see if I got any future leaks. So far, I HAVEN'T. A normal rain would often result in puddles of water. Of late, Chicao has had some torrential rains yet my basement is still dry. I am VERY pleased with the work, and I'm happy I did not pay the $5500 I was going to pay to one company.
Then he began to talk about all the issues and how they could fix them. Most waterproofing companies do this, I understand. They are trying to sell you their services and products and try to convince you that you need it and they will give you the best service compared to competitors.
The thing that irked me the most was the salesman was pushy when I said 'no' to his offer becuase it was very expensive and I could not pay that much. I was also on a tight schedule and had said so in the beginning. I had to be somewhere in an hour and I had talked to the person on the phone and explained that. But the salesman was upset I had to leave when I said 'no' and politely told him I had to get going. At that point is when he automatically lowered the price he originally qouted. Funny how those sales tactics work. When I again said no, he tried to give me an even lower price for part of the work and talked about financing. I said 'no thank you' and again said I had to get going. He then was visibly upset and tried to convince me to talk to him for 5 more minutes. I had gotten the information I needed and clearly he just wanted to make the sale but come on. I said 'no' three times and I was already not happy that they clearly try to gouge the customer for as much money as they can get, if you say 'no' the first time they'll go down, etc. SO this kind of car salesmanship bothers me and I know I"m not the only one. Just give me the best price right away. I have talked to numerous Waterproofing companies in the area and can tell you the ones that just give you their price straight away and don't PLAY these kinds of games. I'm not buying a car and it just feels like they are trying to cheat you out of your money or for as much money as they can.
Be sure to do your research and assess if you really need a drain system and sump pump. There are other ways to fix the problem and if you find there is not, be sure to shop around for companies. They are a dime a dozen and some are just trying to sell their products and services for a lot more $$ than it's worth.
